SEASONAL INFLUENCES ON WATER QUALITY PARAMETERS AND POLLUTION STATUS OF THE ENNORE ESTUARY, TAMIL NADU, INDIA
In the Tamil Nadu state of India, stations on the Ennore and Kovalam estuaries on the Bay of Bengal were studied for seasonal changes in water quality parameters for a period of two years from April 2005 to February 2007. It was confirmed that the values were significantly higher (p<0.01) at Station III on the Ennore estuary when compared to Station I and Station II and the Kovalam estuary control site. The results suggest that an increased seasonal change in water quality parameters of the Ennore estuary may be due to high pollution caused by the surrounding industries. The seasonal variation of the parameters in the Ennore estuary appeared to be dependent on biological processes and the environment pollution status.
